Another Israeli myth takes a beating
Over the years the Zionists have foisted many a myth on an
unsuspecting and gullible world audience. The success of Israel myth
manufacturing industry was mainly due to the pro-Israel Western media
which spread all its cons to all corners of the world with the aplomb
that made readers and viewers accept all what it said without question.
The thrust was so powerful that the very thought of questioning the
authenticities of these myths would make one look like a dumbo, even
anti social. So much so it was thought that Israel was a miracle state
and the Zionist Jews were about the cleverest of people on earth which
in itself is a myth.
One of the notorious myths that Israel floated around was that
Palestine was a place without any inhabitants and so the Jews would get
the Land Without People For A People Without Land. Another was that they
made the Dessert Bloom. With the advent of many media outlets
independent of the Western media and especially the internet, these two
myths have been dumped in the dustbin of history. Nobody takes them
seriously anymore. Not even the Israeli propaganda machinery. There were
Palestinians in Palestine and they had tilled the land for centuries,
long before the Jewish Zionist state was even thought of.
The Palestinians had exported oranges to France years before the
first Zionist set foot in Palestine. The constant media reports of the
Israeli army uprooting fig trees and destroying farm lands in Occupied
Palestine makes a mockery of the Israeli propaganda of making the Desert
In the latest myth shattering exercise, Israeli historian Prof.
Shlomo Sand of the Tel Aviv University in his book
When and How the Jewish People Was Invented? in the Hebrew language
says the description of the Jews as a wandering and self-isolating
nation of exiles, who wandered across seas and continents, reached the
ends of the earth and finally, with the advent of Zionism, made a U-turn
and returned en masse to their orphaned homeland is nothing but national
Dismissing the exile Prof Sand says the Romans did not exile people
and that the vast majority of Jews in Palestine were peasants and all
evidence suggests they stayed on their lands.
The Romans did not exile peoples and they could not have done so even
if they had wanted to. They did not have trains and trucks to deport
entire populations. That kind of logistics did not exist until the 20th
In addition he argues that most of today Jews have no historical
connection to Israel.
In short what he actually saying is there was no such thing as exile
of the Jewish people from their land. This, he argues, never happened.
Hence, the Diaspora is a total fabrication of the Zionists. This
raises a crucial question. How come there were millions of White Jews -
or Ashkenazi Jews- around the Mediterranean Sea at the turn of the
century? The Bible describes Jesus Christ, undoubtedly a Jew, as a brown
man with curly hair in the Book of Revelations.
Answering this question Prof Sand says the people (Jews) did not
spread but the Jewish religion did Initially Judaism was a proselytizing
faith unlike today.
Prof. Sand argues that the most crucial demographic addition to the
Jewish population of the world came in the wake of the conversion of the
kingdom of Khazaria - a huge empire that arose in the Middle Ages on the
steppes along the Volga River, which at its height ruled over an area
that stretched from the Georgia of today to Kiev. In the eighth century,
the kings of the Khazars converted to Judaism and made Hebrew the
written language of the kingdom.
This hypothesis is backed by the Jewish historian Arthur Koestler in
his book The Thirteenth Tribe.
